director needs to be able to lead as well as manage. Leadership involves

Module 3 | June 27, 2018

Managing Employee Performance in Health and Human Service

Adam Lodzinski PhD

Most organizations have formal performance appraisal process in place to review an employee’s performance over the previous fiscal year. However, employee performance is also a day-to-day event that needs to be praised or “course-corrected” regularly during the year to ensure employees are delivering what is expected and to avoid surprises at the year-end appraisal. This aspect of performance management is not often addressed.

This workshop is designed to provide supervisors and managers with a framework for on-going, regular employee performance management, as well as tools and language to support them in this process. It will consist of lecture and demonstration, but will focus on practice to successfully manage employee performance.

You will learn to:

Use a framework to provide some structure and predictability to employee performance management

Set expectations with employees and explain why they are important

Conduct regular one-on-ones with employees and describe why they are important

Determine when you should provide coaching, positive feedback and constructive feedback

Use basic coaching techniques, provide positive and constructive feedback and the language to use to help you through it

Module 4 | June 28, 2018

Holding Difficult Conversations

Marion Langford, M.Ed

We avoid having difficult conversations because we fear the consequences, despite the mounting evidence that something needs to be said. This workshop is designed for anyone who wants to improve his or her skills in conducting difficult conversations at work (although the skills will work elsewhere too). Using a combination of self-awareness and conversational tools, participants will have the opportunity to apply and practice the tools in a safe, confidential learning environment.
They will leave the workshop with a communications toolkit that will
increase their confidence and preparation for future difficult

Participants Will Learn To:

Discover their own strengths and style of communicating when stakes are high
Prepare for the conversation by developing clarity about what they want and what their assumptions are

We will explore the best practices in facilitating change as well as how to help employees handle change constructively. Some employees embrace change while others react with denial or resistance. Participants will
learn practical tools and techniques that will enhance their ability to
manage these reactions to change and implement change effectively.

Participants Will Learn To:

Apply best practices in implementing change
